Money was in the Dj'ing back then £200/300 per set & do 2 (possibly 3) a night for a few years & you might make yourself a few squid.
You think the big players would have all done 5-6 gigs per week. c100k per year and that was 20 years ago (worth c200k per year) Not a bad Krust(!) for doing something you love.

That was a great read - thanks to Ian & of course Ron. It's nice to see such humility in a dance scene promoted by so many pricks at the time. =D>


2 quotes I absolutely love:

Ron - "They say that 'you can't polish a turd, but you can roll one in glitter'... that's probably true of music production."

& Lien - "...it proper cünts me off...." :lol:

Not that Ron, it was actually, it was Big Ron who tipped me the wink on that one. I was buying a bunch of grapes off his stall, and we got chatting and he told me about MC Lethal. :D
